Rural Nevada Democratic Caucus Hosts First Virtual Meet ‘n’ Greet with 2020 Candidates
May 31, 2019
Today, the Rural Nevada Democratic Caucus hosted its first Virtual Meet ‘n’ Greet with four Democratic presidential candidates. This is the first event of its kind to take place across rural counties in an early nominating state. Participants included Senators Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, Congressman Seth Moulton, and Marianne Williamson reaching more than 230 Democrats in 17 rural Nevada locations.
“For the first time ever, we’re giving Democrats in rural communities across Nevada the opportunity to hear from the candidates and talk to them about the issues they care most about,” said Rural Caucus Chair Kimi Cole. “As first in the west in the presidential nominating process, it is crucial Democratic voters from every part of our state are afforded the chance to hear from their candidates as they lay out their plans for Nevada and for our country. We hope to hear from all of our 2020 candidates as we work to host more successful Virtual Meet ‘n’ Greets ahead of the February 22 caucuses.”
Sen. Cory Booker met Friday with Democratic voters in rural Nevada. The theme? How the problems of folks in rural Nevada aren’t all that different from the problems of folks in urban New Jersey — including health care costs and the struggle to find affordable housing.
